write my php DeepDiscountDVD wishlist email to HTML conversion script (read all 2 entries…)
moot

Sadly they redid the wishlist functionality – there is no way anymore to email the wishlist.

Next steps, I suppose, would be to create a way to log in and scrape the list that way…

Another awful ripoff (16):
  • Fight Club: Members Only

I began watching Bollywood movies because of an awful ripoff, that one called The Fog and presumably released the same time as the Hollywood remake of the old John Carpenter “classic”. That movie wasn’t about fog at all.

This one, though, is about a “fight club” that four friends create, to give people a safe place to iron out their differences (i.e. beat each other up). The similarities to the David Fincher/Brad Pitt/Ed Norton film from 1999 carry over to there being a number of rules for the fight club, and that’s about it. Fincher’s film is a brilliant and violent indictment of consumerism and modern malaise and blah blah blah whereas Vikram’s version is about some guys who want to kill some other guys, after framing them or something, and they’re all interested in running night clubs.

And there’s dancing. They dance, and fight, and fight and fight and fight…

Do not watch this movie.

get this 'spider solitaire' monkey off my back
no longer addicted

I’ve kicked the habit. I know I can play a game here or there without any trouble, because I can quit anytime.

I’ve got the MIDI cables, at least.

getting there...

I now know four of them, leaving me only one or two to go.



file my taxes before Valentine's Day
... well, more or less

I finished and submitted the federal forms on time, and I thought I was ahead of the game on Ohio… until I discovered that our yearly IRA contributions aren’t deductible.

I learned this last year, and in my excitement for another several thousand dollars’ write-off, forgot again.

So the Ohio numbers were wrong, and I need to file an amended return. I’m waiting for final confirmation from the IRS and then, once those two are covered, I’ll look over the city’s numbers.

So I’m in good shape, all told. I’m counting this one done, and certainly worth doing.

I think that now that I’ve added several hundred bits of media I can consider this goal ‘done’, though it will never truly be.
